Frito-Lay Recalls Jalapeño Chips Over Salmonella Fears

(CNN) Frito-Lay is recalling two jalapeño-flavored potato chip products over fears of Salmonella contamination.

The voluntary recall of jalapeno flavored Lay's Kettle Cooked Potato Chips and jalapeño flavored Miss Vickie's Kettle Cooked potato chips is due to the potential presence of the bacteria in the seasoning, the company said.

The chips affected by the recall were distributed to retail stores and vending machines and have a "guaranteed fresh" date of July 4 or prior.

Packets of those chips contained in multipacks with a "use by" date of June 20 or prior printed on the multipack package are also being recalled. Other flavors in the multipacks are unaffected by the recall, Frito-Lay said.

In a statement posted on the FDA's website, Frito-Lay said one of its suppliers had recalled a seasoning blend that included potentially contaminated jalapeño powder.

While no Salmonella had been found in Frito-Lay's supply, the company said it was recalling the products "out of an abundance of caution."
